Heavy rain and snow on the way this week


Tuesday will be cold and breezy, with the chance for a few snow flurries, and high temperatures around 39 degrees.

By Friday the southerly flow will push even more clouds over Acadiana and a few scattered showers. Those pesky breezes NW 7-17 miles per hour will gust 20-25 miles per hour at times making our highs in the low and mid 30s feel like teens and 20s most of the day. Rain and snow amounts look to be on par with the first system, but snow totals will be higher due to the lower snow level. If the low can develop and track across western Montana, bands of moderate to heavy snow would be likely for mountain passes. Temperatures should stay fairly warm, topping out in the 50s and 60s and dropping into the 30s and 40s at night. Those chances for snow showers continue through the evening and into early Wednesday before tapering off.

Tonight clear skies and calm winds will allow temperatures to drop in the low-mid 20s.

Clouds have pushed their way back into central IN and along with a stiff northeast wind, temperatures have struggled to rise into the low to mid 40s IN most areas Sunday afternoon. Highs bump up a bit, into the lower 40s, Thursday, with the help of a little more sunshine, however, the breeze is still with us. It won't add up to much, with only light accumulation possible. Expect partly cloudy skies and afternoon highs in the mid to upper 70s. We will have some occasional showers through the weekend.

SUNDAY: Mostly cloudy skies and seasonably cool temperatures develop, with a high of 57 degrees. Tuesday and Wednesday's daytime highs will only be near 60, although both will be sunny days. Temperatures in the mid 50's Saturday and Sunday.

The 2018 spring equinox is March 20th, 2018 at 12:16pm.
